    Help please , my wordpress site , posts will not open.....

    http://www.show-plates.com/show-plates-news/

    if you click on any of the posts they dont open and if you are in the admin area and make a new post , it shows in the list but will not open.

    also if you are in the admin area and try and goto the preview section and try to preview the post it does not appear.

    i do have a backup from a few days ago , but i'm not even sure how to upload a back up !??!

    If anyone fancys having a look at it for me it would be much appreciated .

    I gotta say, you have been having problem after problem with wordpress, with each and everytime the solution is one of the plugins.

    Whenever you have issues with wordpress (or anything in life), troubleshoot things one by one.

    With regards to this issue, try the following:

    • Disable all of your plugins and see if it works
    • Enable each plugin one by one, checking the functionality after each plugin has been activated
    • at the point when your blog stops working, you have found out the problem plugin
    • as you have found the problem, you have 2 choices. 1 choice being don't use that plugin and find an alternative. Option 2 being learn php, javascript, css, etc to get round the requirement of a plugin

    It sounds like a bit of an arsey response, but in all honesty, no-one can really help you out with these issues, as they are part of your wordpress setup.

    If at the point you disable all of the plugins and you are still having issues, roll-back to the default theme (as sometimes, a themes functions.php can be dodgy). If you then still have problems, that is the time to ask for help. ;)

    I didn't think it was possible for anyone to "break" a WordPress installation so many times in such a short period. :)

    :( i'm not sure it was fully fixed the first time i fixed it because i assumed if the show-plates-news was loading , then surely each post would work , but alas no :( i think its to do with the cache , i have installed a backup , it has rolled back things such as plugins , but alas the problem as not been able to view post is still there....so it cant be the plug ins...who is the best person on here to take a look at the site to try and fix it for me !?!?

    When you make or edit a post there is a url under the post title. Are these still unique to the post? Or has something maybe changed them.

    Well try giving one a unique address, as it should have and then see if it works. They should follow the title as standard for example if the title is Show Number Plates the url should be /show-number-plates

    It is hard to workout without looking at your site admin. I would offer to look but I'm not at the pc over the weekend.

    cheers mat , you have helped , i changed the setting to one of the standard options in permalink and site wrote that type of post correctly and it let me view the file , so it did write a unique address ........but its not the type i want the pretty type of urls not the ugly type (as they seem to be called on the wordpress forum).

    so it appears that the site is working , it just when it comes to unique / pretty url's thats where the issue is , i might have someone to look at it tonight a guy over in canada , so fingers crossed , but i think it will be not to much of a problem for someone in the know , if i dont have any joy , i'll contact you on monday if thats okay and see if you can fix it for a fee of course.
